Autophagy occurs prior to apoptosis and plays an important role in cell death regulation during spinal cord injury (SCI). This study aimed to determine the effects and potential mechanism of the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist extendin-4 (Ex-4) in SCI. Seventy-two male Sprague Dawley rats were randomly assigned to sham, SCI, 2.5 μg Ex-4, and 10 μg(More)
Mitochondrial division inhibitor 1 (Mdivi-1) is the most effective pharmacological inhibitor of mitochondrial fission. Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a common and serious trauma, which lacks efficient treatment. This study aimed to detect the role of Mdivi-1 in neuronal injury and its underlying mechanism after acute SCI (ASCI) in rats. Western blot analysis(More)
Heat stress will stimulate cells of living organisms to generate heat shock proteins (Hsps). In the mouse liver, impacts of heat stress on hepatocyte proliferation, apoptosis and metabolism have not been studied systematically at different temperatures. In this research, the test mice were heated to 40, 42, 44 and 46°C, respectively, for 20 min and(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the effects of supplemental chromium as chromium picolinate (CrPic) on productive performance, chromium (Cr) concentration, serum parameters, and colostrum composition in sows. Thirty Yorkshire sows were bred with semen from a pool of Landrace boars. The sows were equally grouped and treated with either a diet(More)
